Philosophy Forum Hosts Prof. Tanesini
The Philosophy Forum, composed of cadets and faculty, hosted Professor Alessandra Tanesini of the University of Cardiff in a discussion of her new book, The Mismeasure of the Self: A Study in Vice Epistemology. The book explores how assessments of one’s self-worth impact one’s ability to know. In her talk, Dr. Tanesini discussed how humility, arrogance, and obsequiousness shape one’s epistemic capacities, for better or worse. This talk is the first in a series the Phil Forum will host this year on the theme of Epistemic Justice and Epistemic Virtue.
